Halvorson Design's recently completed Channel Center Parks project has been featured on the front page of Landezine.com. The urban park supports the needs of the South Boston neighborhood – including children’s play areas, a dog run, and community gardens – in composing a lively, textured landscape that establishes a counterpoint to the harsh, flat character of the post-industrial district. Weaving together vibrant plantings, reclaimed materials, and inviting social spaces, the parks respond to the industrial heritage of the site while providing an active urban landscape that engages the local community.
Halvorson Design's collaboration with HGA Architects at Lakewood Cemetery has been featured in World Landscape Architecture. Lakewood Cemetery has been the foremost resting place for Minnesota’s distinguished citizens since 1871. This treasured haven of beauty, art and history, wherein broad sweeps of lawn are punctuated by fine stone monuments, trees and meandering roadways, is an archetype of the quintessential American “Lawn Plan” cemetery.
Halvorson Design's Norman B. Leventhal Park at Post Office Square has been honored with the 2014 Landmark Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects. Principals Craig Halvorson, Chuck Kozlowski, and Cynthia Smith attended the award ceremony today at the ASLA Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado.
